Ramirez out with sore left wrist

Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez sat out Sunday’s series finale against the Nationals with a sore left wrist that has bothered him “for a while” but has not seemed to affect his doubles stroke.

Ramirez hit his 35th double in Saturday’s loss, giving him a chance to break the Brewers’ single season record of 53 doubles by Lyle Overbay in 2004. Ramirez is currently on pace for 57 doubles, and is batting .286 with 12 home runs and 61 RBIs in his first season with Milwaukee.

“I’m fine,” he said Sunday. “I could use a day, but I’ve been playing with it for a while now. We agreed the first day of the series that [manager Ron Roenicke] was going to give me Sunday. It’s been going on for a while, but I’m good enough to go out there and play. I’m sure there’s a lot of guys in here who are not 100 percent, and I’m no exception.”

Ramirez says the issue does not bother him on every swing, but flares up from time to time.

Is it ok for a guy on the DL to get a rehab start before he gets off? Especially when the team puts the plaeyr on the DL, such as Wang, because they are struggling, in order to avoid sending them down to the minors in which they will have to clear waivers and probably be picked up by another team? No, let Manny play in the minors it is part of the Collective Bargain, who cares if he is roaming the basepaths in single A this weekend?
